UNLOCK Blockchain Forum has officially unveiled the first line-up of speakers for its upcoming event, scheduled for Jan 14-15, 2018. The venue is the Ritz Carlton Hotel, Dubai International Financial Centre, in Dubai.

The UNLOCK Blockchain Forum will be the first MENA Asia Blockchain Forum to be held in the emirate bringing together around 400 attendees from across MENA and parts of Asia. The forum aims to gather blockchain experts and implementers to discuss where blockchain can be implemented, how it will disrupt businesses; bring forth the sharing economy; while showcasing Dubai’s achievements in spearheading blockchain implementation in the region.

Its first batch of distinguished speakers include Oliver Bussmann, founder of Bussmann advisory, president of Swiss Crypto Valley, and strategic advisor to IOTA, the blockchain company for the Internet of Things; H.E. Dr. Aisha Bin Bishr, director general of Smart Dubai; Engineer Wesam Lootah, CEO of Dubai Smart Government; Jehan Chu, managing director of Kenectic Capital (formerly Jen Advisors) as well as Founder of Ethereum Hong Kong, Hyperledger Hong Kong, and co-founder of Bitcoin Association Hong Kong; Dr. Paulo Tasca, founder and executive director of the Centre for Blockchain Technologies, UCL University College London; and Ismail Malik, founder and CEO of Blockchain Labs and Editor in Chief of ICO Crowds, the first ICO Crowd Magazine in the world.

Lara Abdul Malak, UNLOCK Project Lead, and senior editor at Al-Iktissad-Wal-Aamal Group, said: “ We aim to make UNLOCK Blockchain Forum a memorable and informative experience that lives on and grows in tandem with blockchain implementations and technology. We call on all to participate at UNLOCK Blockchain Forum, because blockchain will touch every one as it disrupts economies, governments, businesses, and individuals, just as the internet did almost two decades ago.”
